North Vancouver Wolf Pack and Mission Outlaws goalies Trevor Withers and Jeff Veitch shake hands at centre ice at the end of the game. The Wolf Pack won 3-2 to win the league final.

Outlaws ousted from final, still playing for provincial crown

Despite losing the league championship to the Wolf Pack, the Mission Outlaws are going to the provincials.

The Mission Outlaws have been eliminated from the league championship finals, but while the squad may be down, they aren’t out.

The local junior B hockey club lost 3-2 on home ice to the North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Friday night, giving the Wolf Pack the league title by a margin of four games to two.

The Outlaws players looked devastated after the loss, but they know the season is not over.

Mission is the host team of this year’s Cyclone Taylor Cup – the provincial hockey championship tournament – and will join the championship teams from B.C.’s three leagues in a four-team round robin playoff.

The Outlaws join the league champion Wolf Pack along with  Vancouver Island champions the Campbell River Storm and the Kootenay champs (still to be decided between the Kamloops Storm and the Kimberley Dynamiters).

The Cyclone Taylor Cup runs April 3-6 at the Mission Leisure Centre.For more information visit cyclonetaylorcup.ca.
